Wild & Ancient Britain with Ireland

Expedition Highlights

  • Witness some of Europe’s largest seabird colonies—puffins, gannets, guillemots, kittiwakes, and more—pack dramatic cliffs and rocky offshore islands.
  • Visit Giant’s Causeway where some 40,000 closely-packed hexagonal columns descend like a staircase into the sea.
  • Discover important Neolithic monuments—the Standing Stones of Stenness; the Ring of Brodgar; and Skara Brae, a well-preserved Stone Age village.
  • Explore a variety of architectural wonders, from Mousa’s Iron Age broch and 12th-century Iona Abbey to the magnificent St. Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall.

Expedition Team

Ocean Adventurer

The 120-guest Ocean Adventurer will be refurbished in 2017 and is a superb oceangoing vessel equipped with stabilizers and an ice-strengthened hull that allow her to navigate easily in the most rugged natural environments. A fleet of Zodiac landing craft allows us to explore at a moment’s notice. Each stateroom has an ocean view, an in-room music system, and en suite bathroom.
